Before Pam Turkin flung open the doors to the first Just Baked in 2009, she was just baking cupcakes on the weekends. But after her corporate travels took her past a growing number of cupcake shops outside of southeastern Michigan, she decided to turn her hobby into a career. She now helms 17 shops in the area, where she and her staff of dessert experts whip up eclectically flavored cupcakes such as red velvet cheesecake, chocolate chip cookie dough, and grumpy cake. In addition to the mouthwatering flavors, all of their items boast real butter, real eggs, and real milk as opposed to artificial ingredients from artificial cows and chickens.
Located in an English country cottage, the English Tea Garden hosts idyllic afternoon tea times with traditional British bites and a menu of 11 loose-leaf teas. Mother and daughter tandems and men's rugby teams can spend an afternoon quaffing tea from fine china. Parties can choose tea selections such as the Organic Earl Grey tea or the Tippy Assam Leaf tea, in which black tea mingles with exotic fruit flavors. Guests also can nibble on assorted tea sandwiches and scones while marveling at how large their hands look when holding miniature pastries. Devonshire cream, preserves, and lemon curd accompany dishes for dainty delectability.
You can have your favorite coffee drink served hot, frozen, or over ice. Whether you're in the mood for a hot Miracle Mocha, or a frozen hot chocolate, they have something for you. They have a variety of loose leaf teas to choose from to enjoy with your locally baked scones, cookies and fresh baked muffins. As the cool season approaches, so do the delicious seasonal drinks such as the White Peppermint Mocha, Eggnog Latte, and the Gingerbread Mocha.
During the week, Miracle Coffee hosts a range of events. These include a kids-focused story time offered on the second Tuesday of the month, as well as open mic nights that cater to local musicians or auctioneers that like to practice between gigs.
